Listen: New Music Friday Ft. Cage The Elephant, Jade Bird, X Ambassadors, And More
Cage The Elephant
Cage The Elephant have dropped their fifth studio album, Social Cues. The album comes after a string of releases, including the song “Night Running” which featured Beck; The two will kick off their co-headlining tour this July. Social Cues, which was released via RCA Records, was produced with the help of John Hill who has worked with artists such as Foster The People, Florence + The Machine, and Portugal. The Man.
Jade Bird has finally released her self-titled debut album, Jade Bird, via Glassnote Records. The release follows her 2017 EP Something American as well as her breakout hit “Lottery.” The album is an accurate representation of the tender, yet robust, personality the English singer-songwriter encompasses. We recently had the pleasure of having Jade Bird perform during a special UKTX edition of our 101X-Sessions. If you haven’t seen the performance, check it out here.
Fitz and The Tantrums
Recently, Fitz And The Tantrums released “123456,” their first single in nearly three years. Now, the band has released a new track titled “Don’t Ever Let Em.” Both tracks will be featured on the band’s fourth album, which will be released later this year. We recently had frontman Fitz in the studio to talk about the process of creating their forthcoming album—listen to the whole interview here.
A few weeks ago, we heard the first release from Modest Mouse since 2015’s Stranger To Ourselves. This song, titled “Poison The Well,” was included on a 7” double-sided vinyl that was released exclusively for Record Store Day. Now the band has released the second track featured on this vinyl, “I’m Still Here.” Listen to the track below.
The X-Ambassadors have announced the release of a new album ORION—their first album since their debut album VHS came out back in 2015. The album is set to be released on June 14, but nothing is set in stone just yet. To celebrate this announcement, the band also dropped a new single titled “HEY CHILD.” Listen to the new track below.
Catfish & The Bottlemen
Catfish & The Bottlemen unveiled a new single this week titled "Conversation." The song, along with a few other recently released singles, will be featured on the band's third album which is due out April 26th. This album marks their first in three years and follows 2016’s The Ride.
